Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are dental procedures that involve the removal of one or more teeth from the mouth. Dr. Craig Cardon is dedicated to providing gentle and effective tooth extractions to patients. Our goal is to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the extraction process while promoting your overall oral health.

Reasons for Tooth Extractions
There are several reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted, including:

  • Severe Decay: Teeth that are extensively decayed and cannot be restored with fillings or crowns may need to be extracted.
  • Advanced Gum Disease: Periodontal disease can cause the supporting tissues and bone around the teeth to deteriorate, leading to tooth loss.
  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth that are unable to fully emerge through the gums due to obstruction or improper alignment may need to be extracted.
  • Orthodontic Treatment: In some cases, tooth extraction may be necessary to create space for orthodontic treatment to align the teeth properly.

Benefits of Tooth Extractions
While the thought of tooth extraction may seem daunting, it can provide several benefits, including:

  • Pain Relief: Removing a severely damaged or infected tooth can alleviate pain and discomfort.
  • Prevention of Infection: Extracting a tooth that is at risk of infection can prevent the spread of bacteria to other teeth and surrounding tissues.
  • Improved Oral Health: By removing diseased or problematic teeth, overall oral health can be improved, reducing the risk of further dental issues.

The Extraction Process

  • Consultation: Dr. Cardon will evaluate your oral health and determine if a tooth extraction is necessary.
  • Procedure: The extraction procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia to numb the area and minimize discomfort.
  • Aftercare: Following the extraction, you will receive instructions for post-operative care to promote healing and prevent complications.
